Altering text in webpages

Postby osborne » Sun May 29, 2005 1:39 pm

Some of the text for the webpages on a journal site can be changed by the journal manager, via forms under the control of the Journal Manager. (I see they are stored in the journal_settings table of the database.)

I'd like to change some of the other bits of text. Where can I find them? Are they in the database, or are they hardcoded into one of the files? I've been poking around without success. Specifically, I'd like to alter some of the text on the submission pages: take the first block of text in Step 1, for example ("Authors submit items ..."). If I know how to change that, I think I'll be able to figure out everything else.

Bugzilla seems to be down/dead, so I'll report what seems to be a minor error here. (It doesn't seem worth starting a new thread for this point.)

There seems to be a small error in the EDITOR_ASSIGN template: the link leads to submission "editing" whereas it should lead to submission "reviewing". Logic suggests that that can be corrected by changing
Is that right?

I should add that the software is astoundingly good!!
